    Open Session Dialogue Should Remember Checkbox State

    I prefer to open a session in the current window, so I have to clear the checkbox every time.

    In Opera 12.17 this setting is called

    PageBar Open URL On MiddleClick

    There is already a command for Load Images

    Please add a similar command for Play Animations to toggle animation between Loop and Never

    Enable Show Toolbar Shortcuts for Fullscreen

    Currently, if you press the shortcut to show/hide address bar, status bar, bookmark bar in fullscreen mode they do nothing, but the affect is seen on exiting fullscreen. This is a bug (which I think I reported), but it would be better to show the toolbars (and Panels) in fullscreen mode.

    Sort Commands for Mouse Gestures Alphabetically

    Currently, it is hard to find commands or even to know if they are available. Opera 12.17 has a Quick Find feature that makes it even easier, but sorting them would help.



  • My idea is sessions management in windows panel I use sessions very often but doing it from menu it's not very comfortable.

    Remove Triangle Icons from Bookmarks Panel

    0_1511372932339_Triangle Icons.png
    These are superfluous. The Open/Closed folder icon could do the same job while being a bigger target.

    To rename a folder or bookmark, click on the Title, or right-click, rename.

    Eight users did not understand the feature request.

    Clarification:

    1. Single-click on the folder icon expands and collapses the tree
    2. Single-click on the selected folder title edits the title
    3. Double-click on the title edits the title.
    4. Single-click on the folder icon could still expand and collapse the tree


  • Adjustable middle-click scroll speed

    alt text Currently there's no control over speed and minimal is to fast for reading.



  • Mouse shortcut options for COPY / PASTE !
    (currently there is only an option for "paste as plain text", and I can't even get it to work)



  • VOICE DICTATION!
    Be the first browser to integrate dictation! (windows native dictation is awful)
    Adding browser voice control (like close/open tab, or "go to gmail") would be even sweeter.
    This would really put Vivaldi on the map!



  • Option to select external editor instead of internal source code viewer for control-U, as in Opera 12 and Firefox.


  • Vivaldi Ambassador

    Having the option to select "Last Session and Homepage" in startup would be great.
    Not just either last session "or" homepage. Having both would save a lot of grief. Especially
    if doing computer maintenance pinned tabs are accidentally cleared.

    I'll keep requesting this till I'm blue in the face.



  • Pull site permissions into Vivaldi's settings under privacy
    Right now we have to go to vivaldi://settings/content which is accessible from the address bar popup, but settings like this should be within Vivaldi's settings, instead of the built in Chromium tabs.

    Most users won't realize there's a place where they can see all site permissions in one place, but within Settings it will be easily discoverable.



  • Native blocking of trackers and cryptomining scripts
    Ghostery is a good extension but it requires trusting the sharing of site data with the extension. It is now built into Cliqz - owned by Mozilla.

    That said, I think Vivaldi should protect users by default in these instances. Users will probably trust Vivaldi over an extension as well.


  • Vivaldi Translator

    User-friendly view for JSON
    like Firefox.

  • Vivaldi Translator

    Allow switching between tabs when "Authentication Required" form appears.

    Currently, if this form appears (see image) the user is unable to switch to another tab. Sometimes I need to copy some username or password from another page and this makes it impossible.
